The Duo Go Toe To Toe With Black Superman

After eight (yes 8!) films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise adds its first stand-alone installment as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.

Fast & Furious veterans Johnson and Statham will go up against Idris Elba’s villain, Brixton, who will be wreaking “havoc, hell, and mayhem”.

Here’s the trailer:

Here’s the official synopsis:

“When cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent, who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.”

Also joining the trio is Vanessa Kirby (The Crown), who will be Shaw’s sister Hattie, an MI6 agent. Helen Mirren has been confirmed to reprise her role as Deckard and Hattie’s mother, Magdalene Shaw. Eddie Marsan (Deadpool 2), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Johnson’s cousin Roman Reigns, Cliff Curtis (Fear The Walking Dead), NFL star Josh Mauga and Power Rangers’ John Tui.

The Rock’s pet French bulldog will also star in the series as Hobbs’ dog.

Will There Be Another Fast & Furious Movie?

Of course there will! The ninth installment in the franchise is set for release on 22nd May 2020.

Thanks though to Hobbs & Shaw, The Rock will sit this one out. However, Jordana Brewster will be reprising her role as the sister of Vin Diesel’s character Dom (who was last seen heading off with Brian, played by the late Paul Walker).

Hobbs & Shaw is set for release on August 2, 2019.
